One neurologist tried to treat it with medication and I am now waiting on an appointment to see another specialist. Anyone have any ideas about this.
I also have segmental myoclonus. after seeing my MRI, I could see where the damage was in my upper back and neck, due to when I was young, carrying egg baskets the wrong way. Meds didn't work, just made me spaced out all the time. I went to a Chiropractor, he tried to fix the damage but was unable to. I quit the Neurologist. I really don't know where I am going next but am still trying and if I find any help, I will be sure to let everyone know. This condition has prevented me from driving, bummer. It is a comfort to read the letters from everyone, even though there isn't many of us in this world. I do have restless legs, take Ropinirole every night, works great. I don't suffer from leg cramps or pain anymore. I also take Gabapentin at night too, helps too. Good luck to you, keep in touch. Jeanne
